Why does [tex]sqrt{x}[\math] come out as [tex] not the formula?
I have been struggling for hours . even typing in the tutorial example:
[tex]x^2\sqrt{x}[\math] although the first expression was typed in as [ math ] (with out the spaces )
The point is :
The tutorial says type in [math]...... \[math]
but when I do I do not get the formular as you have - by changing [\math] to tex i see!
If it did work you would have sen the maths formula in my post ...!
When I type in [ math] sqrt{x} \[mat] as an example .(I know about not leaving spaces )
When I preview I get [tex]... my formula as I typed it in...[\math] I do not get a formula in mathematical notation
Your post has a huge number of typos: using \ instead of /, having \ before [ instead of after, writing mat instead of math, etc. It is not surprising that with such number of typos something does not work. I suggest you copy-paste the code from the tutorial instead of re-typing it. If you still have an example in the tutorial that does not work, please post a link to that example. Plato showed the exact code to produce a LaTeX formula.

My point was I did not know what I was doing wrong- I never said the tutorial was wrong - why is every one so arsey?
It was anther person who suggested the tutorial was wrong.. THE TUTORIAL CLEARLY SHOWS \ not / as I had to keep correcting my self - being used to using / as divide by.
See the inserted images in my other answer
In my original post there are NO typo math is math and \ is as the tutorial showed me i.e. not /
I just wanted some help! I am not criticising any one except my self!
